How to Convert Electronvolts to Watt-Seconds

To convert a measurement in electronvolts to a measurement in watt-seconds, divide the energy by the following conversion ratio: 6.2415E+18 electronvolts/watt-second.

Since one watt-second is equal to 6.2415E+18 electronvolts, you can use this simple formula to convert:

watt-seconds = electronvolts ÷ 6.2415E+18

The energy in watt-seconds is equal to the energy in electronvolts divided by 6.2415E+18.

For example, here's how to convert 5.0E+18 electronvolts to watt-seconds using the formula above.
watt-seconds = (5.0E+18 eV ÷ 6.2415E+18) = 0.801088 Ws

Electronvolts and watt-seconds are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Is an Electronvolt?

An electronvolt is the amount of energy required to accelerate an electron through a difference in electric potential of one volt in vacuum. One electronvolt is equal to the charge of 1.602176634 × 10−19 C, and is equal to the energy of 1.602176634 × 10−19 Joules.[1]

Electronvolts can be abbreviated as eV; for example, 1 electronvolt can be written as 1 eV.

Energy in electronvolts can be expressed using the following formula: E = qV

The energy E in electronvolts is equal to the electric charge q in elementary charge times the potential difference V in volts.

What Is a Watt-Second?

The watt-second is a measure of electrical energy equal to one watt of power over a one second period. One watt-second is equal to 1/3,600 of a watt-hour or one joule.

Watt-seconds are usually abbreviated as Ws, although the formally adopted expression is W·s. The abbreviation W s is also sometimes used. For example, 1 watt-second can be written as 1 Ws, 1 W·s, or 1 W s.

In formal expressions, the centered dot (·) or space is used to separate units used to indicate multiplication in an expression and to avoid conflicting prefixes being misinterpreted as a unit symbol.[2]
